Well, that's why I made the point that China wouldn't be an option. Give them the specs, and it's copied faster than light. And, the encryption etc. Some are not legally able to be exported by law.

There's a bit more to that than just labour. Think chip security, and knocking off the product as well.

The Chinese are well known for it. "Give them one, and they'll make a million".

BINGO!

Yeah, that's another thing. Mexico isn't well known for that type of security breach. I mean, what guarantee do we have with the Chinese?! Only risk with Mexico is that you might have traces of the white powder...true story, by the way.

from this article

While there weren't the long lineups typical of an Apple launch, both Rogers and Bell reported strong demand for the phone, with 50 per cent of pre-orders coming from non-BlackBerry users, according to independent technology analyst Chris Umiastowski.

"We're hearing that pre-order sales have exceeded iPhone sales for the last three months," Umiastowski told CBC News.

I'm actually tempted to get it. But wondering if I should wait to see what other phones they'll release this year though. I still have some time as my contract ends in April before Fido starts spamming me with offers.

Also need to find a decent plan offer... Got too used to my $25 plan so it's going to be hard to accept anything more than $35 a month. :\

Umiastowski is a BlackBerry fanboy. He is a regular writer on Crackberry.com. I'm not saying he's wrong, I'm just saying he drinks the Kool-aid.

I said to hell with it and "reserved" one last night. I was 2683 in the queue. I looked today and now I'm in the 2800's. Awesome job Rogers.

I'm not trying to put down RIM but just where the hell do they "hear" that? We can only know for sure when RIM posts their quarterly report.

insiders in the carriers? No idea really, just guessing.... it holds as much weight as the people saying none have sold

Koolaid is good, I hear they have a new Blackberry flavour that is much better than the Apple flavour

and you're assuming they don't already have it...if they wanted it, they would have it...they have their ways (and have been caught numerous times already in various industries).

ummm, no...closing plants in the US, and putting those people out of work, does not help the US economy...a lot of manufacturing had moved to Mexico going back 10-15 years...a lot of it is still there, but a lot of it is moving back to the US over the past 5 years...that is part of why there is a bit of a recovery down there.

Ya with their online device reservation system. I'm stymied as to how my place in line got moved in the wrong direction in 8 hours, but at least this way I won't have to search for one. I'll check with my local Rogers store later in the week still, but otherwise I'll just let Rogers sort it out for me.

maybe they did not get enough for all the pre-orders yesterday, and those people were added to the list ahead of you ?

The list takes that into account. Preorders were all supposed to be done on the website. What's more than likely happening is VIP customers are being put at the top of the list.

That... is a very broken website. None of the images, or apparently the CSS load. The server returns 400 bad request for all of them.

I'll caution that sales results for Canada won't necessarily reflect those of the US; RIM's marketshare has always been much higher in the Canadian market than the US, but in relative terms, the Canadian market is rather unimportant.

Relative to market share, yes, but if they can stay alive based on the Canadian and British markets long enough to make improvements in developer support and fix the little glitches in the OS, they could conceivably make a comeback.

There's a lot of ifs there though.

Not sure what site he's referring to but both links on this page of the thread all load fine for me, both Chrome and IE.
